Roughly the size and shape of a small football or softball, the flavor of the Mamey Sapote is a unique and wonderful experience.

Encased in a coarse brown coat, this thick skin gives way to a soft, creamy consistency and a delicate flavor reminiscent of honey, persimmon and sweet potato.

The Mamey Sapote is picked when hard. When ripe, remove the large, avocado-like central pit and enjoy out of hand or diced for fruit cups, pureed and blended with whipped cream, or swirled into a thick, nutritious shake.

Look for fruit that is firm or slightly soft. Whole Mamey Sapotes should have a nick near the stem that exposes its interior. If green shows, the fruit is not yet ripe. Leave at room temperature until the fruit yields to gentle pressure. Once ripe, Mameys can be refrigerated for up to three days and should be chilled prior to serving for best flavor.
